Crappy Must See Movie of the Week: Private School

OK all you Matthew Modine fans out there.   If you’re truly a fan then you know of the movie Private School.   Talk about one of your all-time cheesy 80s movies with gratuitous nudity and a dumb plot.  This is pure entertainment if I’ve ever seen anything.

Going back to 1983 this is a classic.  Want a synopsis?  Here we go….

Christine (Phoebe Cates), a student at an exclusive all-girls private school, is in love with Jim, who attends an academy for boys nearby. Christine’s arch rival Jordan also has her eye on Jim, and she is willing to do whatever she can to steal him away. Jim’s uber-slob buddy Bubba is going with Betsy, Christine’s cynical friend, though he would probably be unfaithful if any other woman were willing to get near him. Bubba and his pals sneak into the girls’ school dressed in drag in hopes of reaching the Promised Land (better known as the women’s shower room), while Christine and Jim run away together for the weekend, though their escapade isn’t as romantic as they had hoped.

Enjoy the trailer after the jump……


Tell me you don’t want to see this movie and I’ll tell you you’re lying.

  1. I have arecommendation for the next Crappy Must See: Camp. It is honestly the campiest, cheesiest movie I have ever seen. It’s set at a performing arts summer camp and I was laughing almost the entire time.
